Hello, New here :)

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forums so thought I would introduce myself and my birds, I'll try to get some pictures of them soon

Bluey, Red Collared Lorikeet (6 years old)
Dusty, Cockatiel (1 and half years old)
Newbie, Cockatiel (8 months old)
Car Alarm, Cockatiel (2 years old)
Randy, Cockatiel (3 years old)
Swinger, Cockatiel (2 years old)
and their two finch friends, they haven't got a name yet but are around 1 year old
Rocky, Long Billed Corella (18 years old)
Poppy, Pink and Grey Galah (12 years old)
Buddy, Apricot Galah (4 and half years old)

Rocky and Buddy are actually my mums but they like me more and Poppy is mine but likes her more

Welcome to the forum can't wait for photos! May I ask what you mean by Buddy being an apricot galah? I haven't heard of that mutation!

Thanks for the Welcome

Sure, an apricot galah is a cross between a corella and a galah, in looks they can take after either one more, but in Buddies case he looks like a normal galah except his feathering is a pale orange colour.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, I just added a new addition to the flock today.
s/he is a 3 month old whiteface cinnamon cockatiel
Very active and chirpy from the moment s/he got in the car and on the way home, can tell this little one is probably going to be a handful
